REVOLT ON A FRONTIER PLANET
The corrupt Earth government is sending an army to Greenwood to remove the pioneers who discovered and settled the planet: the potential profits are too great to leave the world to scraggly ne'er-do-wells!
Though the rugged individualists of Greenwood may be fractious and disinclined to agree on most things, the greedy politicians of Earth will learn a harsh lesson if they think the settlers won't join together to save their livelihoods and homes! Under Yerby Bannock, who never walked away from a drink or a fight, the Greenwood patriots will face thugs in the night, lawyers in a distant court, traitors in their own ranks.
And, if they have to, a fortress built to shrug off the assault of a battlefleet!

I will recommend Patriots to a friend because of the story, it's telling and Drake's consistent science throughout his many stories.
Matt, he grew as a character and person as he learned to live in his new world.
too many to choose from.
Patriots, what it means to be free.
This is the same quality of story from David Drake I've come to expect. Mark Vietor brought the characters to life and made each different and engaging. I laughed out loud several times through this romp on the fringe of civilization.
